Kirpal Ecological and Meditation Center, 11-acre organic orchard, has been blessed with a pure intention to serve all, including 30 different types of trees that provide fresh produce and herbs for the guests. The cabins on the property have all been built by hand and designed to be in harmony with the trees and nature surrounding them. Accommodations are lovely cabins, with options for both individual and shared, all full of charm.
Enjoy the sanctuary of the Balinese meditation pavilion, and practice in the 1000 square-foot yoga studio with views of the ocean over the trees. All this, and a 15-minute walk to the beach, and natural thermal pools under the jungle canopy.
This yoga teacher training in Hawaii progresses over 18 days by a map of the chakras, starting at the root and ending with the crown. During the root segment, you will ground your intentions for teaching and practice, as well as learn the vast history of yoga from the Vedas through the Upanishads, Buddhism, yoga sutras, Bhakti traditions, Tantric lineages, and contemporary yoga schools.
In the sacral chakra, you will uncover the countless layers of the subtle body, learn the principles of Ayurveda, gain an overview of classical Tantra, and practice yoga Nidra. As you progress through the navel chakra, you will explore yoga's connection with power, fire, and introduce Lakshmi practice and the business of yoga.
In the heart, you'll encounter the devotional path of Bhakti (devotional) yoga, as well as ceremony, prayer, and healing. You will connect in nature and receive teachings on the heart of your practice. You share in men's and women's circles as a step in your process of uniting energies, wherein you also honor identifying with a group other than your assigned-at-birth gender and exploring the group you feel called to.
Moving upwards into the throat chakra, you will learn about Kashmir Shaivism and the Sanskrit language, pronunciation, principles of chanting, and a wealth of mantra, and deity practices. Progressing to the third eye, the training becomes increasingly more subtle, as you encounter an array of yogic meditations, explore yogic Buddhism, and turn inward in silence. Culminating in the crown, you will receive Kundalini awakening practices, learn Shakti mantra, yogic ritual, and receive an initiation into the practice.
Each of these 18 days will also include a thorough overview in the anatomy / physiology of yoga - asana (postures), a comprehensive outlook on teaching methodology, an intensive dissection of major and minor poses, workshops on adjustments / alignment, and plenty of time for practice teaching. Not to mention time for you to be alone in nature, reflect, hike, swim, stargaze, and relax inquietude. Come join Shivakali Yoga on the island.
For those looking to teach, this yoga teacher training in Hawaii will provide a vast, comprehensive tool-kit for teaching physical postures, breathing techniques, alignment, adjustments, as well as pranayama, mantra, meditation, and more. The principles instructed can be applied to any style of yoga you feel compelled to offer.
For students looking to deepen their understanding, this will be a dynamic expansion of both knowledge and practice. A sincere exploration of what it means to truly practice yoga.
Shivakali Yoga teaches an alignment-based Vinyasa flow practice, culminating in restorative postures, meditation, and pranayama. Their practice serves first to awaken the body and break-up stuck energy, to then soften the mind and nurture the inner being. Uniting the masculine and feminine aspects of practice, you will find freedom in movement, draw awareness from the mind to the heart, and allow insight to arise naturally.
You will have other short days as well to rejuvenate.
